Wavelets and Frames

Department of Mathematics, University of Colorado at Boulder

May 18-20, 2006

This gathering will explore interactions between the theory of wavelets and frames, operator algebras, Gabor systems in harmonic analysis, martingales and probability theory and time-frequency analysis and its relationships to the Heisenberg group.  The invited speakers listed below will give one-hour talks spread throughout Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Parallel sessions of twenty minute talks will be interspersed between the invited talks, and free slots of time will be left available during each day to promote research interaction. The conference will begin at 9:30 a.m, Thursday May 18 and the last talks will end on Saturday,May 20 at 5 p.m.  

In addition to the conference, there will be a no-host banquet Friday evening May 19 to honor Professor Larry Baggett and to celebrate his contributions to the mathematical profession. Details on the cost and venue of the banquet can be found below. 

This is an open meeting with no registration fees.  This conference is being funded by the University of Colorado's Council for Research and Creative Work, the Dean's Fund for Excellence, and the National Science Foundation.

There will be funding available to assist participants with their travel and lodging expenses. All interested participants are invited to apply to the organizers for help with expenses, particularly graduate students, mathematicians at the postdoctoral level, and those mathematicians who are members of underrepresented groups.
